YOP Year 2 Update

Morning Bloggers!!

I’m a day late with the update, we were busy yesterday with last minute jobs to be done, now that they are all complete we can all settle back and enjoy the coming two weeks!!

Knitting has been ticking along nicely. The Jacques Cousteau Hat that I started last week is finished. This hat pattern I just love, it makes the most wonderfully fitting beanie and is so simple I can take it up and put it down as often as I like, something which is very handy at this busy period. My head will be wonderfully warm now with this to adorn it lol. This pattern will be knit again as James wants another beanie in black and wants this pattern as he has a green one and its very comfy!

Jacques Cousteau Hat

I had enough of the Stylecraft DK Life yarn left over from the above hat to cast on some fingerless mitts to go with this. I’m knitting the Susie’s Reading Mitts and will hopefully finish these up over the Christmas period.

    You are making fabulous progress on your list. I wish I was that disciplined.Also, I think that hat pattern will go in my queue. 😉

    The beanie looks like it would be super stretchy which is always a plus when you're not sure how big or small someone's head is. LOVE the color, and I see you've got a new colorful template with your blog. I've not changed mine in a long time….perhaps I should.

  5. Hope you all have a fab Christmas with the new little one. If Christmas really is for kids, then I think Christmas must live at your house :)I hope you enjoy knitting Susie Rodger's reading mitts as much as I did. I've made three pairs so far and it's my go-to pattern. Simple, elegant, well-fitting and very practical!
